In the diagram above, every golfer begins in the middle.
(I’d recommend you print out the picture and put it somewhere you’ll see it often, as a reminder what’s led to your frustrations when things have gone wrong previously.)
I envy these people like nobody else.
They have no knowledge of the game and have an open mind with a willingness to learn.
They accept that they are learning a new skill and things are going to be difficult.. but they stick with it, and soon start to see hints of improvement.
First they’ll struggle to hit the ball.
Then they’ll struggle to get the ball in the air.
Then they’ll struggle to hit it straight.
And so on, and so on.
You know the drill.
All of these problems can be solved by new golfers on their own, simply by refusing to be beaten.
It’s not long before these golfers get to a level where they decide to have a lesson with a pro, or are recommended to do so by a more experienced golfer.
“To help with their technique.”
or they buy new clubs thinking the answer lies there..
And then casually search for 'quick fix' videos looking for answers..
And this is where all the problems and confusion set in.
But because it’s the path everybody follows, nobody ever questions it, they just continue to get more lessons- when in fact, this is what’s causing the problem in the first place!
It can all be much simpler than this.
Basically, anyone that’s played golf for around 12 months or more requires just two things-

- The self-belief they have a swing that works.
You might find that surprising, but over the next few pages I’m going to be explain to you-
